Utilizing The Most Sustainable & Natural Materials Available

At Fawcett, we choose the most environmentally friendly, sustainable and natural materials available. Duane and Ross, our founders, set out to build a healthy mattress. Something that they would like to sleep on, or would build for a friend. From Fawcett’s inception this meant eliminating toxic fire retardants and petroleum based foams – among other nasty chemicals found in 95% of mattresses produced globally.

Instead, Fawcett utilizes 100% Natural Talalay Latex tapped from sustainably harvested rubber tree forests. The rubber, is tapped from Havea Braseiliensis trees in a similar process to how maple syrup is obtained.  Organic Cotton and Joma Wool are also key components of our mattresses.

We also carry a number of products that have various certifications. Our newly procured Fawcett sheets and bedding meet the Oeko Tex Made in Green, Oeko Tex 100 Standard and the Oeko Tex STeP certifications. The Down products we carry are Downmark certified, and our wool Kouchini pillows are Woolmark certified.

We strive to obtain both materials and suppliers which engage in sustainable and socially responsible business practices.
